According to the criminal complaint, a Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office detective assigned to the case describes the first victim, an inmate at the jail, reported that Fernandez-Rosa made sexually charged comments toward her over a two-month period.
The complaint alleges that the comments escalated when the guard on two occasions exposed himself and touched her inappropriately without permission. During the latest attack, Fernandez-Rosa told the victim, “You know if you say something what’s going to happen [sic]”, the complaint states.
A guard also assaulted an employee at the jail, according to the complaint, when Fernandez-Rosa was sitting at her workstation and making numerous sexually charged comments. She told him to leave. He then exposed himself and grabbed her, making sexually inappropriate comments, prosecutors say.
Both victims did not consent, according to the complaint.
